Happily for me I recently won a competition, the prize for which was dinner, bed and breakfast in the Twelve Hotel. As we were travelling quite a distance to get there we booked in for a second night. My only regret was checking out! From the moment we arrived we were struck by the friendly and welcoming nature of the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 August 2016

We spent 11 days traveling through Ireland and chose the Twelve as a pit-stop on the way to our cousin's wedding in Cork. Overall, all locations we stayed at on our trip were outstanding... but the one we keep talking about post-trip is the Twelve. We are a married couple (ages: 37 & 34) who traveled with my parents (ages:...

Our two night stay (16th & 17th Feb 2017), in the Twelve Hotel, Barna was a sublime experience. We were accompanied by Nelson, (a five year old "used to the good life" pug dog) and on arrival were given a most welcome goody bag for Nelson and shown to our special (used only by those with accompanying dog) suite, which...

My very favourite hotel to stay in during any trip to Galway. Such a beautiful hotel, staff and everything about it are wonderful. Third trip there and I'll definitely be returning again on my next visit to Galway.

You could pass by easily but you d miss out! An unassuming roadside location within a modern grey stone building hides a great stop off point to stay when visiting beautiful Connemara. Boutique hotel room with a very comfortable bed and wonderful shower. Open fires and lounge- able sofas downstairs . all make for a reviving break. Excellent food in...

This is conveniently located, slightly higher in price but the rooms are beautiful & staff is very friendly and accommodating. I did not try the restaurant however I did get breakfast and it was delicious. They also have a wonderful bakery right near there.

A fantastic 2 night stay in this very comfortable and very friendly hotel. On arrival we were given a pizza making class getting to eat the self made masterpiece when ready. On our second night we had a top class meal in the restaurant. It should reach its goal of Michelin status. Great selection of foods for breakfast where you...

Very nice room and good food on offer at The Twelve. Will use again for business and will also use for weekend break with my girlfriend. Nice touch with hot apple juice at reception upon arrival on a cold February evening. Would recommend to anyone not looking for close proximity to Galway nightlife.

I have been to this hotel a few times now and I can't rate it enough. When you arrive, you are welcomed with a hot drink and the staff are so welcoming. The room is lovely with a massive bed, mini fridge, lovely shampoo and so on. When you leave, you are offered a token for a free hot drink...
